  • Aggie 100 List Includes Nine Local Businesses

Texas A&M Mays Business School is recognizing aggie businesses for their successes.

Mays presented their list of the 100 fastest growing Aggie owned and operated businesses Friday and that list includes nine local businesses.

A room full of Aggie entrepreneurs. Today 100 Aggie owned and operated businesses recognized for their success.

This is the first time for local software company Frogslayer.

Ross Morel, Frogslayer President, says "I started the company right out or right before I graduated in 2010."

Morel is honored with the recognition especially because of his company's humble beginnings. He says "the company just sort of happened and grew out of nowhere."

Also, first time Aggie 100 honoree, Net Near U, another local company. Cody Catalena, Net Near U CEO/President, says "we're one of the few local companies, so it's great to be a local company and be here at Aggie 100."

Criteria to be in the Aggie 100 list: each company must have been in business for at least five years. They must operate in a manner that follows the Aggie code of honor. And for many of these businesses, it's about Aggies helping Aggies.

Catalena says "there's an immediate bond and it's easy to do business with the other Aggies and it's great to have."

Morel says "so our model is based on hiring students early on and giving them the training that they need and retaining the ones that want to stay on and the ones that don't we actually help them in finding jobs in the marketplace."

These business savvy Aggies helping shape our global economy.
